The Campaign For DA

9.15.2016

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • I looked at the Court of Criminal Appeals hand down list yesterday and saw two Wise County cases on it. The State won both. By the afternoon, I had received a call about one of them but, by the time a case gets decided in Austin, it is all but over. (Death penalty cases still have some "life" but not regular felons.)
  • DPS took $200,000 left in an "abandoned" car in Hildago County.  I've got lots of questions about all aspects of that "case."
  • That Arochi trial is interesting, and I could smell a little desperation with the prosecution. They tried to admit into evidence yesterday an olive jar (found in a shoe) filled with an oily type liquid smelling of cinnamon and with pieces of paper within. The reason they wanted it? Possible witchcraft. Yep. Witchcraft. How'd they know? They read it on the Internet. Seriously. The judge denied the request. 
  • A body was found dismembered and burned near Lake Grapevine yesterday.  Arochi related? Probably not but worth a though since his alleged victim is still missing. 
  • There was a "human trafficking" case in the news about a week ago that I meant to mention. Some guy gets arrested in Wise County for having twelve (?) people in an SUV with him. He goes to jail and the twelve are let go.  (I would like to predict that any prosecutor who first reviews that case will think, "And just how do you expect me to prove this?")
  • A pastor interrupted Trump yesterday when he began to make a political speech.  I presume there were ground rules. If not, the pastor was rude.
  • I'll admit that the more I watch it the more that video from the weekend of Hillary is very odd. To me, it actually looked like she was a malfunctioning robot. That's truly my best description. And is it just me, or did those around her not move with quite the sense of urgency you would expect them to?
  • Why I hate sports interviews: The Ticket had Jason Witten on for his weekly show and they asked him, somewhat out of nowhere, if he had seen the dismembered hand of Jason Pierre-Paul while on the field against the Giants. Ok, that's kind of funny. Witten, in a deadpan voice, said "no, I didn't" and then spent over a minute talking about what a great player Pierre-Paul is (something which no one asked him about.)
  • Best idea I heard to stop the sun from coming into Cowboys Stadium: Move the Sky Mirror to the other side of the stadium and use it to reflect the sun. Brilliant. 
  • Ben Hur, the recent remake which doesn't depict electricity, bombed at the box office. 
  • The Waco Twin Peaks biker cases finally has a development: Three cops involved in it weren't indicted for crimes. Yep, they took the allegations all the way to a grand jury. As to the biker defendants: No trials. No plea bargains. No convictions. It's been well over a year.
  • Sandra Bland's family got almost $2 million in a settlement by the government? (And the "non-economic" agreement is the Sheriff's office yelling "mercy.")

Hillary's 9/11 collapse video is this season's Zapruder film. So many aspects of the scene that don't really connect to what we expect make it disturbing. Whether it's her clear ill health, her ninety minute disappearance, or the Secret Service procedure (or lack thereof,) there's a lot for the world to chew on.

In other news, it was just reported that one of the largest gains in middle class incomes happened last year, including a huge increase in voluntary participation in the work force (that one's for you, Wordkyle), as well as sustained growth along all classes.

But vote Trump, to make America great again and Democratic policies aren't working, right?

Found money in "Hildago" county:
I'm sure if somebody came forward to claim it as their drug money, it would be handed over cheerfully.

If the guy was arrested for human trafficking, wouldn't that mean that the people he was trafficking were illegal? If so, why weren't they handed over to the proper authorities?

Dismembered and burned body near Lake Grapevine:
somebody check to see if Terrance Williams is still on the active roster!

The Jason Witten response should be a good reason to like (his) sports interviews. In addition to being a great athlete, he's also a tactful and considerate human being-type person. He took the high road when it would have been easy to make cheap jokes.
A few years ago, he honored his commitment to the weekly radio interview by taking their call at the hospital while his wife was in labor. He shines like a diamond surrounded by the poopoo of the NFL

Only an idiot would think there was a lot "to chew on". I'd like to see Wordkyle keep up the type of work schedule that included long hours and travel, where he didn't even have enough time to post on someone else's blog while eating donuts and getting fatter by the day sitting comfortably behind a desk in his mom's basement, waiting for that next writing assignment to arrive so he could buy the newest edition of whatever anime comic book it is he reads. I can see her having pneumonia. I can also see her having Parkinson's, but that's so far down the line of differential diagnoses that it's not worth mentioning. She's older, got hot, and fainted after being sick.

But you know what? Tim Kaine would make a great president too, and if I remember correctly FDR got us through a couple of rough spots just fine despite being frequently ill.

Hillary's health is not a reason to vote for Trump. Not even close.

I'm not a Hillary fan (in fact I don't like EITHER candidate), but I'm serious--I don't think all this stuff about Hillary having Parkinson's Disease is just political/election BS. It really looks like SOMETHING is going on with her, and it's not just a "touch" of pneumonia or concussion-related. There is NO WAY a person should be in the president's office with a serious degenerative illness like that, and I think the Clintons are trying to pull the wool over our eyes on this. I won't even blame the Democratic Party on this yet--they may have been duped or kept in the dark about this, as well.

re: DPS seizure of 200K
A bit more than just 'take the money and run' happened. A DPS K-9 unit made a positive alert on the vehicle. "The agents then conducted a search of the vehicle and located 13 bundles of U.S. currency, totaling $206,601, hidden within the back panels of the vehicle’s front seats."

I'm thinking most of us don't carry neatly wrapped bundles of money in the side panels of our cars and just forget about it. I regularly search for small change at Sonic..."Hang on son. Let me check the back panels for enough cash to cover those chicken nuggets."

I read yesterday that Ford was moving more plants to Mexico. I think I am correct to say that "if it is too large to ship back to the U.S. then illegals come across our border to build it". So there goes more jobs to Mexico and more of the type of urban blight that we see in Detroit. We will need to increase taxes to pay for more food stamps, housing and medical care for those left unemployed by this action of Ford. Vote Trump.

930 - Maybe the idiot is the person who believes there's nothing disturbing about the video. Major media outlets and Democrat operatives think there is. Your partisan defense of Hillary is misplaced in this instance, and may also reflect on your own idiot-ness. Your attempt at a personal attack on me is sort of cute, I'll give you that. Like watching a baboon smoke a cigarette cute.

I'll break my own protocol and, this one time, address the troll's remarks. It happens to be true that, in Obama's eighth year in office, the American economy is finally recovering. That the recession was longer and more severe due to Democrat policies is pretty much a given.

And now the shroud once again descends.

Wordkyle is so cute.

Somehow, a recession that was in full swing during a time when Republicans controlled the White House, Congress, and frequently the Supreme Court (so much so that Bush was throwing money at banks to keep them from failing) goes unnoticed. But Obama somehow "made it worse". And yet I never heard, and still have not heard, a single idea from a Republican as to how it could have been fixed sooner, or how we're really going to make America great again. "Anybody but Obama", and now "anybody but Clinton" are all they can muster. No plans, no suggestions, just 100% opposition. Opposition to Obamacare, chipping away at it at every opportunity and then claiming it doesn't work; opposition to a very reasonable Supreme Court nominee; Opposition to immigration policies when Obama has actually deported more illegals than any president before him (and Reagan has the record for number of illegals given amnesty, by the way); and any other thing that is even hinted at by the current administration. Even as the Republican Party constantly has to apologize for, and frequently departs from, its new leader.

But as far as how bad Obama made things, just how was that done? By having dozens of months of economic growth? Steadily increasing job growth? Steadily increasing (still!) rates of increased health coverage for the previously uninsured? Steady growth in every economic factor? With reduced deployment of Americans in hostile countries? With a record high stock market?

I've missed you, Wordkyle. You still need some work, but I think your admission that I'm right will be a new beginning for us.

FDR was probably the most conservative world leader at the time. Countries all over the world were going full-on socialist, fascist, and communist, and we're the only major power to retain as much of our pre-depression freedoms as we did.

Did the depression last longer than it maybe could have? Sure.

Was it worth it not to go through a revolution or follow leaders like Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin? Absolutely.

There's a cost for everything, dip shit. Ours was gradual improvement and retention of our economic system.

Don't know and don't care. I'm just fine with its current expense. However, I would like for Republicans to quit whining that it's too expensive and doesn't work, all the while preventing its full implementation upon which initial studies were based.

The economic numbers you refer to are rigged by a corrupt system. When that system collapses, its members (you included) will be exposed. Despite your own attempt at propaganda, millions of Americans are out of work and going hungry because food prices are rocketing (if you haven't noticed). All the same, the fed says we're doing fine. It's a lie.

Liberal, progressives policies do not work. How do you like your tyranny? I'll bet you like it with a touch of gayness, right?

The videos to watch of Hillary are not just the collapse videos. There's the video where she just stands at the podium and totally freezes, and the security guy runs up for "no reason". Then there's the crazy head-bobbing one when she gets hit with a loud question by a lady to her immediate right, which is really disturbing. And finally, the one almost everyone saw-the balloon release at the convention standing/walking by hubby--her eyes, mouth, and responses are also very disturbing. Not just your "minor" health issue.

Headline: "Ohio police shoot little boy who was carrying a BB gun". Great. Thanks. Yeah. Just a little kid walking out of the toy store with a new BB gun he bought with his allowance. Or, at least that's what the headline suggests. Armed robbery, then he and his two accomplices running after being questioned about it by police, then pointing the gun at the police...kind of not mentioned.

"Obama has opened the borders, flooded the US with illegals"

You missed the part about deporting people in record numbers, didn't you?

"continued a disastrous banking policy,"

Banks don't seem to be hurting. Their stocks are pretty high, and they're not exactly lobbying for change.

"and (you ninny) by forcing us all to pay insurance premiums -- perhaps you'd rather call it a tax?"

I personally don't think it's a tax. But your conservative Chief Justice Roberts does, so I guess it is. But no matter what it is, I'm OK with it. do you think changing the label will make me not like it? If it wasn't called a tax would you like it? I'm having a hard time tracking what you think is important.

"The economic numbers you refer to are rigged by a corrupt system."

Man, somebody better tell Wordkyle, because he missed a great opportunity to tell me how rigged and corrupt the system is, instead of agreeing with me like he did.

"When that system collapses, its members (you included) will be exposed."

I don't think so. I"m well armed, can raise my own food, and have a good field of fire. Don't come at me with anything less than one of those new up-armored troop carriers. Anything less, and you'll see how "exposed" I am.

"Despite your own attempt at propaganda, millions of Americans are out of work and going hungry because food prices are rocketing (if you haven't noticed). All the same, the fed says we're doing fine. It's a lie."

This is always the case, but less-so now under Obama. I'm glad you suddenly care for the little guy, though.

"Liberal, progressives policies do not work. How do you like your tyranny? I'll bet you like it with a touch of gayness, right?"

Are we talking about the policies that led to the highest stock market ever? Or maybe to the current record sustained growth in the middle class? Tell me how all of these "liberal" policies have failed you.

"Anyway, yes, you can expect to see opposition to you and your crazy view of things from here on out."

Well, I hope you get better at it. So far all you've done is bluster a lot of talking points that even Wordkyle would d(and has!) take my side on. Come back when you have something.

"I do believe the worm has turned and for your own good you would do well to recognize the turning tide. KMRebelA"
